Sledgehammer's take on CoD feels pretentious

#1M16CrowbarPosted 8/29/2014 4:10:46 PM
Anyone else feel the same? Seriously, MW3 and Ghost felt like lame fanmade CoD games that didnt feel like in the same caliber as MW and MW2. It felt like a bootleg version because it has all the Hollywood explosions, but not the charisma or charm. Their single player campaign was the result of trying too hard and not understanding the formula of what makes a good MW game.It's like an Asian movie that's transitioned to an American movie. The scenes are all there but the real charm is gone (Like the movie Oldboy). At least Trearc are keeping their take on what CoD is but never feel fake from their roots. Hell, i can even say they are better than IW now.

What are your thoughts on SH or the old MW series?

Cod singleplayer never had any "charm" lol

Its never been more than run from point a to b & shoot everything in between.
Multiplayer has gone downhill since 4 & WAW and is pretty much just twitch trash at this point. It's become nothing more than a game aimed at kids who can't sit still for more than 30 seconds, much less play with any kind of patience or strategy.

I have hope for the new one but not much

I'm guessing this is more an issue of you getting older than the series having less charm. CoD is what it is and hasn't changed much in that department, at least in my estimation.

Ghosts felt like a more shameless copy of the Call of Duty formula than GameLoft's Modern Combat series. Except Ghosts was done far far far far far far worse.

Advanced Warfare looks like a desperate attempt to differentiate while being sure to leave in all the awful bits that draw the ignorant masses.

To me Battlefield Bad Company 2 felt more like the sequel to MW1 than MW2.

COD4:MW, MW2 and Blops2 were like the gold standard of new era CoD games. It's unfair to compare subpar efforts to those games.

Bad Company 2 is so good.

I can't believe how bad BF3 and BF4 are compared to BC2.

When you consider the massive success that was Call of Duty Elite I would say everyone is in good hands with Sledgehammer. Also as long as they let Raven design the maps they can't lose.
